4 Films by Robert Beavers

Robert Beavers und P. Adams Sitney im Arsenal, 15.5.2011 // 19:00 // “My Hand Outstretched to the Winged Distance and Sightless Measure”: “In diesem Zyklustitel verbirgt sich durchaus Praktisches: Die ausgestreckte Hand. Der geflügelte Abstand (oder auch: Ferne, Wegstrecke, Zwischenraum, Zeitraum). Sowie das blinde Maß – ein Begriff, der unter anderem besagt, dass Robert Beavers bei der Montage kaum je das Bildfenster des Schneidetischs im Auge hat, sondern den Filmstreifen selbst, und dass er dabei stark auf die Erinnerung an den Moment des Filmens vertraut.” (Filmmuseum Wien) Niemand hat die poetische Kraft der Filme von Beavers anschaulicher hervorgehoben als P. Adams Sitney in seinen Schriften. Wir freuen uns, beide als unsere Gäste begrüßen zu dürfen.

“My Hand Outstretched to the Winged Distance and Sightless Measure”: “The title of this cycle hides something very practical: The outstretched hand. The winged distance [or also: distance, space, time]. Just like the sightless measure – a term that also points out that Robert Beavers does not have his eye on the image aperture during the montage but on the filmstrip itself, and that he deeply trusts the moment of filming.” (Filmmuseum Wien] “No-one has done more to elucidate Beaver’s poetic strength than cultural historian P. Adams Sitney.” (M.Guillen) We are pleased to welcome both as guests.
